Re: Is your Aikido as a Martial Art up to Reality?

I love the term "organic." How many people have ever eaten inorganic carrots? No doubt made out of petrol. Is that organic dirt that you eat in England, or is that made out of synthetic material as well.
I've always LOVED the fact that in chemistry, the word 'organic' as in 'organic chemistry' or 'organic compounds' refers to the family of carbon-based compounds... Which means that in practice 'organic chemistry' deals MAINLY with petrochemicals, pharmaceuticals, synthetic fertilizers and herbicides....
